Legacy of a Warlord
« on: January 02, 2011, 08:05:49 AM »
Hi Everyone,

I am glad I finally followed through and built a roguelike. I welcome you all to come and try it out and give me your feedback. I'd call it a 50% done alpha product. I'm just guessing though, maybe it's more or less? Its a little buggy but I think I have something brewing that will shock and awe, (eventually, I hope, maybe?).  ;D

Glad to see the site is back online. I was wanting to post here after my release.

Legacy of a Warlord site: http://www.legacyofawarlord.com/

Well. I'll see you around and I am off to get some rest. Releasing roguelikes is hard.

Will

I really like this roguelike's idea, conquering stuff is always fun.  I'm definitely looking forward to its continued development.

Couldn't enter a sinkhole using enter. Read the manual and kinda gave up expecting it be a case of the alpha blues. Looks like it'll be pretty neat though, hope it sees a release in the future.

May I ask what OS/keyboard you are using? I'll have to try to expand my testing to capture why enter key wouldn't work. This has me puzzled but I'll log the bug and do my best to fix it.

Thanks for the feedback!

Had a breakthrough. Wrote up a A* caching system that allows 4,000 simultaneous mobs to move around and battle it out. Double the goal of 2,000 I was hoping to achieve for this project. I am posting that revision this Saturday.

Now to start working on more content. I want to add boss monsters to the bottom level of sinkholes for players to fight against and collect rare loot.

I posted a new story to http://willraman.tumblr.com/ with screenshots of testing this new code. Have a few minor bugs to work out.

very cool! i downloaded after I saw the crowd pictures.

I tried running with Wine under Ubuntu Linux, sadly that didn't work.

Maybe it's something trivial: the first screen says "it any key to generate.. bla" so I hit a lot of keys. Should the screen change after I hit a key? For me, it doesn't. I waited 5min.

Sorry to hear it didn't work.  I really need to make a user status update on load progress.

It should take about 10 seconds to generate a map and characters. There is a logfile.txt that is created that might give an indication where it stopped.

The libtcod does provide linux support so I'll do a proper release for linux as I get closer to beta.

Oh! You get good progress since my last download of Legacy!
Keep up the good work!

Found:
If increase height over 45 and  width over 70 some text would hide and, the most important, there is some leak  in main menu, if you will leave game window for some time (for example keep it going and start do somethig else), game would lock up the computer. Freeze can be removed only by reseting the computer.
Checked twice.  ???

I will look into the memory leak. That is definitely a critical bug that I will fix right away.

Thanks for letting me know.

Didn't see that one coming....also surprising is .58 due to come out somewhere in 1969.   How out there!

Yeah, I come up with some crazy ideas. I thought I would poke the market and see what would happen. I figure that would be better for an end user then just shelving this for a year while I work on a contract.

Development on demand idea was a bust on a new game. Trying that was primarily why I started this project.  I am still curious about that so I might just try that again some day.
